Inaugural lecture: Foodborne infections and outbreaks - in Denmark and beyond

School of Global Health
On 24 September 2021, Steen Ethelberg, Professor in Infectious Disease Epidemiology with special focus on surveillance, outbreaks and disease burden, held his inaugural lecture "Foodborne infections and outbreaks - in Denmark and beyond".

About the lecture: Diarrheal diseases transmitted via food still pose a major public health problem in both low and high income countries. I’ll tell the public health story of a few important foodborne bacterial infections, Salmonella, Campylobacter and Listeria, with a focus on their epidemiology, major outbreaks and recent progress in managing the infections in Denmark.
